The Mob Museum
The Mob Museum, The National Museum of Organized Crime and Law Enforcement, is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit dedicated to the history of organized crime and law enforcement. It is a world-class destination in downtown Las Vegas located steps from Fremont Street.
The Mob Museum provides a world-class, interactive journey through true stories. From the birth of the Mob, to today’s headlines. Shadows and whispers. G-Men and Made Men. Whether you like it or not, this is American history. This eye-opening, authentic view of organized crime’s impact on the world reveals an insider’s look at the events and characters of the continuing battle between the Mob and the law.
Real stories are brought to life with engaging, multi-sensory exhibits and unparalleled insights from those on the front lines of both sides of the battle. The Museum offers a provocative, contemporary look at this fascinating topic through hundreds of artifacts and immersive storylines. We bring Mob stories to life so completely, you’ll feel like you’re part of them. But hey—you didn’t hear it from us.
This was a spectacular experience. If you are interested in this kind of stuff like I am, you are in for a treat. Well worth the $, very thorough and lots of info, artifacts, pics, you name it, its here. Learned a whole lot and makes me want to do more research! You have to be prepared to spend like 3 hours though. Do 1.5 hours go grab a bite to eat and then come back to finish. Hats off to whoever curated this place and hats off to the staff working there - they were great too!

There is so much history in that place! The staff was extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of the mob. The only regret we had was not getting a picture with one of the guides who has his picture on the wall because of his involvement with the Mob! Not a place for young kids and there are very graphic photos of actual crime scenes. Great place to visit for history buffs.
This place was okay. It wasn't is up to par with what I expected though. We went in the expectation of a lot of mob history when most of it was about Old Las Vegas. In addition they were supposed to be an Interactive mob shootout at the end that we really wanted to participate in but it was being renovated, so we didn't get to experience it. I wish they had mentioned that before we paid
Very interesting and well done. Worth the admission fee. The building, being an old downtown Las Vegas post office and Courthouse, is the perfect location for this Museum. The original court room, where they held some of the mob trials is intact. They show a movie about some of the proceedings and use the latest technology. It's very cool. The Mob Museum is very close to Fremont Street with plenty of parking.
The museum is really cool and very informative. But they let in too many people inside the museum which makes it very crowded and really ruins your experience.People were on top of each other and it was not even a weekend. People want to pictures of every single thing there which makes the line ever slower. Me and my boyfriend was really looking forward to this but I would not recommend this to anyone till they change the amount of people inside the museum.
